at the white house. the word sequester doesn't mean anything to this student. first lady michelle obama said that the white house is our house. well, it doesn't feel like it any more. mr. speaker, laneer students from texas are not alone. thousands of students nationwide are gearing up for spring break, the cherry blossom festival are a few weeks away. these trips require planning, time and, yes, even money. bake sales, car washes, parents work were off of all involved so kids could come to washington to tour the white house, but the president unfortunately has punished the people for the sake of a few nickels. perhaps the white house forgot what the first lady has said which is posted on the homepage of whitehouse.gov, quote, this is really what the white house is all about. it's the people's house. well, mr. speaker, if this is true, the president should take the padlocks off the white house doors, put the welcome mat back on the front porch because america's kids should not be evicted from their white house. mr. speaker, the open door philosophy of the white house is a uniquely american
on in washington? later today, president obama will meet with house republicans in hopes of striking a bipartisan deal on several issues ranging from deficit reduction to gun legislation. president obama kicked things off yesterday meeting with senate democrats who reportedly pushed back against any potential deep cuts to entitlement programs but the president's outreach which began a week ago when he dined with senate republicans apparently isn't going over well with everyone. the national journal ron fornia asks, quote, is this a schmoozeathon? is this a schmoozeathon a legitimate act of humility and leadership? or a cynical public display? he quotes two white house officials, one of whom called the strategy a, quote, joke. adding it seems intended to satisfy the media more than anything. another said if there is a bipartisan deal it won't be because the president shared steaks and merlot with a few senators. >> harold ford, cynical thing for people at the white house to say. >> i call it a sniping going on. >> i spoke with valerie and some other people over there, they sure don't believe this.
. >> the obama administration officially ending all white house tours. >> but with a perfectly appropriate donation of a half million dollars, president obama will come to you. >> jonathan, that was karl rove's american crossroads, they're running that ad, they take that idea seriously. that they are in a position to criticize o.f.a. for raising money and supposedly selling influence. >> look, the 2012 campaign will be remembered for having built the largest, most sophisticated grassroots political organization of all time. you know what the average donation was to o.f.a.? $65. this is an army of millions of donors. the real question about it is whether the people who gave during the campaign will now step up and realize, they have to send in their contributions of $15, $20, $50 in order to advance the president's agenda. o.f.a. made a big mistake a couple of weeks ago in saying they would accept so-called dark money. which is money that you don't have to disclose. and they've now reversed themselves, that was a really bad idea. now that they're on record for transparency, if the people st
with nearly $1 trillion in new revenue, according to the wall street journal. the white house plans to release president obama's budget proposal in the second week of april. meanwhile, in mo-town, detroit city officials are making a plea to the governor. governor rick snyder recently declared the motor city was in a financial crisis and needs an emergency financial manager. some detroit city officials are sending a message to the governor they prefer sticking with a modified fix-it plan already in place. the detroit free press reports attorney kevyn orr, who managed chrysler's bankruptcy restructering, is the governor's top pick as financial manager. former gop presidential candidate mitt romney is also rumored as a possibility. the government continues to sell off its stake in gm. unfortunately, uncle sam took a loss on the latest trade. according to bloomberg news, the treasury sold 18 million shares when the stock traded between 26 and 28 dollars last month, collecting nearly a half- billion dollars in the process. all told, the government has recovered $29 billion of its $49-billion invest
. president obama met with house republicans wednesday in a bid to resolve the ongoing standoff over a budget deal. obama sparked concern over his willingness to discuss cutting safety net programs in a bid to cut spending. wednesday, he appeared to directly reject republican's stated priority of reducing spending to trim the deficit, reportedly telling them "our biggest problems in the next 10 years are not deficits." the meeting followed the release of the republicans' 2014 budget by paul ryan. his plan would balance the budget in 10 years through major cuts to social programs, including the repeal president obama's healthcare law. president obama said a difference with republicans may be too wide to reach a deal. it may ultimately be the differences are just too wide, if their position is we cannot to any revenue or we can only do revenue if we get medicare or social security or gut medicaid. if that is the position, we probably will not get a deal. >> president of a mess, it's also, senate democrats released 'seir 14 -- president obama comments also came as senate democrats released their
in these discussions, not just leadership. gwen: and republicans welcomed him there. >> i'm glad president obama reached out yesterday and visited with house republicans. i think we had an honest discussion but this is going to take more than dinner dates and phone calls. gwen: it was new, kind of, but what will it add up to in the end? gobbledygook, john? >> two things happening. one, as the president continues on this charm offensive and why? basically it's the last tool he has left. he tried to pressure republicans using his election victory and good numbers in the polls to pressure them to do things. he got some things out of that - a deal with the fiscal cliff negotiation, and also got them to back down on the debt limit. but approval ratings are down. retried to work with republican leaders. that isn't working. now he's going to the rank and file and the basic center of this deal, the grand bargain, is that he will convince democrats to cut entitlements if republicans agree to somegr revenue from taxes. the other drama are these official budgets that came out. they bear no resemblance to t

the white house to tours? they are not. as usual, obama and company blamed everybody else. they claim it was the secret service and them alone who decided to cancel the tours. the secret service has such a great history of good decision making, as we talked about in the past, and boy did that plan backfire. reason -- rather than being an example, this was an opportunity to point out all the other ways the white house is wasting money, like hiring 84 very expensive interns. unbelievable. up next, could president obama and california governor, jerry brown, change their mind on energy policy and sigh the keystone pipeline and more fracking? we'll have more details after the break. ♪ understand my charts, and spend more time trading. their quick trade bar lets my account follow me online so i can react in real-time. plus, my local scottrade office is there to help. because they know i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. i'm with scottrade.

. the white house tours question was brilliant. the obama administration walked into it. earlier this week, representative andy harris, a doctor from maryland -- [applause] >> right? i just moved here and i'm from california. i feel right at home in maryland. you have to watch out. he was on the appropriation committee and he had the president of the disease control center in front of him. you sent out this pamphlet and you're cutting because of the sequestration and 250,000 children in maryland would go without immunization and i have the obama budget in front of me. you were going cut $58 million and no children were going to be -- go out immunization. that proves they are lying to you. number two, they are using children to prey on you and number three, you can cut thout these affects being as disaster ours. call the president out on here and you'll see how the president is manipulating you through the media. is president did not run the election on gun control. children in his own home district are getting slaughtered on a nightly basis and he says nothing about that. this is the one p
in the house today, the free obama phone lie and the other particularly racially charged elements of the republican thesis from the campaign that democratic voters are moochers. >> if you look at the map, if you look at it nationally, there are enough votes for the democratic coalition to win the popular vote fairly comfortably in a national election. there are enough votes in the big states that decide for the democrats to win big states and big senate races. when you break the country down into 435 house districts, the democratic vote is so concentrated in metropolitan areas and the republican vote so spread out over suburban areas, you create a permanent republican house. the demographics of the districts in the house districts do not match the demographics nationally, they are not evolving the way the rest of the country is. they are much older and much, much whiter. it's the republican primary, not the general election that determines who is going to represent them. all the messages, the people who represent the districts and go to washington were immune to what happened in n
." today president obama finished his meeting with republicans and democratic caucuses of both houses of congress. now, according to several gop sources, the president wanted to convince republicans that he was serious about cutting entitlements. congress said it was a really great first step. he did express a willingness to give on entitlements. the word give bothering me. here's what the president said today. >> i think we've had good conversations. but ultimately, it's a matter of the house and the senate, both caucuses getting together and everybody being willing to compromise. >> house leader nancy pelosi said chained cpi and medicare means testing were possibilities. >> if there can be a demonstration, the cpi does not hurt the poor or the very old. then it's something to put on the table. other things that might sustain social security for a longer period of time recognizing the demographic shift that is taking place. >> what's going on here? the washington post reports leader pelosi and senate majority leader harry reid are prepared to rally, rank and file around a grand barga

, in part, obama shuttled diplomacy to the house and senate rank and file may shutdown or at least soften republican criticism that he doesn't reach out to them. was the president successful? >> in the short term, we just don't know yet. i think in the long term, you have to plant some seeds that will grow here since the relationship is frozen right now into this gridlock that we have, if nothing else, it takes away from the republican es the complaint that obama hasn't personally reached out to them, stale lot of work to do with the white house staff to congressional staff level, craig. and i think, therefore, this repair job is a work in progress right now. >> james, let me talk to you about two people, first of all, paul ryan, politico piece, you wrote that ryan mocked the budget proposals by senate democrats and that "ryan, of course, is famous for his own budget. he rolled out a fresh version again this week and this's what he focused on during his 14-minute speech at the conservative confab." one of the things that struck me about paul ryan's speech there in maryland is he didn't ev

that message picks up from right where president obama and the white house left off with their scare tactics about sequestration and these draconian cuts which of course amount to less than 3% across the board of the fed, entire federal budget which, for i think for most people doesn't seem to be that draconian. jon: the federal budget that will spend more money this year than it spent last year even with the cuts? >> that's right. i actually calculated this yesterday. in the ten years that i've been covering congress, federal spending has gone up 65%. which, means that i think a lot of those of us in our business have not been doing a very good job of policing the budget anyway. but, so, you know, the organizing for action committee group has done a very good job. they sort of picked up with the scare tactics right where president obama left off. quite frankly the reason president obama is easing up personally on this we saw just, today, or yesterday, in an interview where he denied that he made the, the white house played the decision to cancel the tours because of sequestration even thoug

obama. we're waiting on his decision which he says to the house republicans will come this week, but i think it's a very interesting point about erskine bowles and other democrats behind the scenes, president obama's problem isn't necessarily the republicans. he's got a huge problem with the senate democrats. he can't bring them along on something that the government should be doing anyway, which is the changed cpi, which is really like a technical fix and inflation goes up and down and spending, it's not reform, it's something that the government should be doing anyway, and he this week, a wall street journal headline, president obama tries to woo democrats over to his side. so his problem is not with the republicans, he would probably be able to triangulate with them. the problem is on his left. where are they? you always see, there's always some courageous member of a party who stands up against his own leadership to say this is just wrong. on the democratic side i'm sure there's grumbling and i hear about it, but where is the courageous person who is going to make that public? >> n

proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downward trajectory, it probably doesn't need to be quite as steep. ezra klein, this is a big deal, and you're here on this show to prove it is a big deal. you would never come out this late if this was
